Re: Jets interested in Betts?

To answer MightyJoeGibbs' question, if we do package Betts and Jacobs in a deal do you suppose the Jets might send us this?

Now that's a deal! I think we can tolerate the Jet green!

3) Saunders LOVES Ladell Betts. He has said that Betts is capable of big things in this league, and compared his skill set to that of Priest Holmes (not a quality comparison, just a style comparison). Saunders has said that Ladell is a complete back, capable of running hard, catching passes reliably, and picking up blitzes consistently. He has also said that Betts and Portis have unique skill sets, and in certain situations, he'll put them both in the same backfield to create matchup problems with the defense.

Just pay attention to the coaching staff. There's no way they're trading this guy.
If we're talking about predictions, then I'd agree its unlikely a trade will be made. And I say that w/the confidence that we would ask for too much. But if the jets are desparate enough & offer us a starter w/a contract we can deal with, its definitely worth doing. I say that because I have a feeling betts will get some $ next year & it won't be w/us.
I hope he stays & re-signs w/us. Sure the coaching staff loves him, but they also have to deal w/the contract issue, something that Gibbs has shown he's willing to be fairly shrewd with, e.g. Pierce, Smoot, Coles, Lavar.

Here are some, to me, eye opening highlights of Jesse's CFL season last year:

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

I would maybe take a 2nd for Betts. If they take jacobs with betts i'll settle for a 3rd.

Seriously i would take a 7th in the 08' draft for jacobs because i think he is off the team anyways. I just think he will be really good when he goes somewhere else.

I don't think anyone is saying that Betts is a great franchise back. However, I think the general consensus is that we should not give up a key player just when we seem to have everything in place for a Super Bowl run. He might not be a starter, but he is an excellent change-up back who could step up if, God forbid, Portis went down.

Also, I don't know of any young, proven offensive linemen on the Jets roster.

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

while we are on the subject of the 2007 draft, i was wondering who would you guys say we pick up, personally id like to see a good offensive lineman like a joe thomas which isn't likely but then i'd also say corner is another rather large concern soo maybe a guy like antonie cason solid corner, but it seems there isint much picking for corners and a rather large selection of reciever too bad we look pretty good there.

I didn't know we were on the subject of the 2007 draft. And if we are, I would recommend we change the subject because the 2007 draft is a long way away.
